REDUCE WASTE THROUGH REUSING

REDUCE, REUSE, REVIATLISE

It has been said that the greenest buildings are the ones that we already have. Upgrading existing buildings is considered a more climate-friendly strategy than producing new energy efficient buildings.

There are many aging buildings throughout Melbourne that are primed for demolition and are set to be replaced by new ones, making Australia one of the leading producers of construction related waste. New construction not only contributes to over 40% of global CO2 emissions but it also uses vast amounts of natural resources.

REUSING INDUSTRIAL & COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS Industrial and commercial buildings are especially well suited to adaptive reuse due to their large open spaces and strucural layout. The decline of heavy industry has left a legacy of abandoned, idled, and underutilized dormant sites across Melbourne.

REUSING BUILDING COMPONENTS Typical life cycle of commercial building elements

This thesis is a critique and a response to the existing Monash University master plan, where high density buildings would replace existing ones. easy sub division

The thesis will focus on applying adaptive reuse practices to Caulfield Plaza, which is in need of revitalization in order to achieve its potential in a vibrant social and economic climate.

envelope 60+ years

interior 5-10 years

structure 80-100+ years

Building envelopes and interiors can be redeveloped through different combinations.

The aim is to create a precedent which can be applied to buildings throughout the world and show that careful planning and incremental change can be more effective than large towers when dealing with increasing density.

CIRCULATION SYSTEM

HOUSING // PRAHRAN flexiCOMMUNITY is a housing system located on essex street, prahran. The brief requires housing for three different demographics; seniors, students and multi generational families. Prahran has quite an active community with many lush parks and chapel street within walking distance. The main idea driving the design is to have 3 different zones for the different housing types whilst having shared community spaces that allow different age groups to interact with each other, thus creating a closer and safer community. The apartments are designed in way that allows easy expansion and subdivision if required in the future.

CREMORNE 2025 (www.cremorne2025.org) STRATEGIC GROWTH PLAN // CREMORNE (group project)

Cremorne2025 is an urban design studio which is part of the Department of Architecture (Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture) at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. In this studio, students are asked to collaboratively envision Cremorne in 2025 as a new, lively, mixed-use, dense and sustainable inner suburb of Melbourne. As part of their overall design vision, the students pursue the activation and occupation of urban space as a central strategy. This approach promotes new ideas for Cremorne and also an understanding of the future of Melbourne in a wider sense. At present, we truly live in the first urban decade. According to the UN, in 2008 the rural/urban tipping point was reached and now more than half of the world’s population live in cities - for the first time in human history! The population of Melbourne’s Metropolitan Area is predicted to grow by 1.8 M by the year 2036. This figure of growth reflects Melbourne’s dynamism and attractiveness as a City with a future. At the same time, it highlights the great challenge of how and where the city will host these new citizens.

To handle the pressure of population growth, cities like Melbourne as well as others in the Americas and Europe commonly pushed their limits outwards by expanding into their rural areas. The often uncontrolled sprawl created manifold problems: detached low-rise settlements with poor and inefficient infrastructure, social segregation, ever-increasing land consumption and rising costs for expanding infrastructure networks.


CIRCULATION CONCEPT PEDESTRIAN VEHICLE

CREMORNE 2025 (www.cremorne2025.org) TOURIST & BUSINESS HUB // CREMORNE

Cremorne is a suburb that is located within walking distance to Melbourne Park, home to Melbourne's major sporting and entertainment venues. Each year, venues such as Rod Laver Arena, the MCG and AAMI park attract millions of visitors with famous international events such as the Australian Open (tennis) and national events such as AFL, A-League Soccer and Rugby. As the population continues to increase, the popularity of the events held at these venues will inevitably increase, potentially attracting more international visitors as well as people from around Australia. In order to allow visitors to fully experience Melbourne culture, a new Hotel and convention centre will be developed within Cremorne. Not only will this project bring a steady cash flow into Cremorne, but it will also provide locals with jobs that are close to home.

Deciduous plants have been incorporated into the facade of the building in order to protect inhabitatants from direct western sun during harsh summers, while letting light through during winter. 5

FISHING RETREAT CABIN HOUSING // THURSDAY ISLAND This cabin is designed to open the interior towards the sea. Due to the constant high temperatures of the region, this cabin aims to create a more comfortable environment by maximising ventilation and reducing exposure towards direct sunlight. This cabin is designed as a light weight timber structure which ensures that no heat is stored within the building throughout the day.

east sun Narrow floor plan to limit the expoxure towards eastern and western sun

-Wind scoops take advantage of the south eastern/ north western winds to further ventilate the building. -The wind scoops act as buffer spaces that reduce the heat from eastern/western sunlight -Wind scoops can be closed off during cyclone seasons

-Higher ceiling allows hot air to rise and be released. -Building on stilts provides further ventilation underneath the building
